Droopy Pants

"Looking like a fool with your pants on the ground ... Call yourself a cool cat, looking like a fool."

We couldn't have said it better ourselves, Gen. Larry Platt. All of the items on our list are egregious fashion crimes, but droopy pants are the only one that could possibly be an actual crime -- lawmakers in several states have actually tried to outlaw them. They can also be hazardous to your health: an alleged murderer in New York City fell to his death when he tripped over his saggy pants while fleeing police. So why are droopy pants still alive? It could be the pure exhibitionist's pleasure in having everyone see your skivvies. Maybe it's the thrill of a challenge -- walking around with your pants belted around your knees is surely no easy feat. Whatever it is, it doesn't look like droopy pants are going away anytime soon.
